I've been trying to setup my PVR-350 to do widescreen.
Using the command:
ivtvctl -w wss -b wss -x 1
Appears to set the required values
[mythtv at olympus ~]$ ivtvctl -w wss -b wss -x 1
ioctl IVTV_IOC_S_VBI_PASSTHROUGH ok
VBI passthrough mode set to 00000008
ioctl IVTV_IOC_S_VBI_MODE ok
vbi service_set set to 00000008
ioctl IVTV_IOC_S_VBI_EMBED ok
vbi embedded in MPEG stream set to 1
However when then selecting Watch TV is resets the VBI Mode
[mythtv at olympus ~]$ ivtvctl -W -B -X
ioctl IVTV_IOC_G_VBI_PASSTHROUGH ok
VBI passthrough mode is 00000008
ioctl IVTV_IOC_G_VBI_MODE ok
vbi service_set = 00000008
ioctl IVTV_IOC_G_VBI_EMBED ok
vbi embedded in MPEG stream: on
I have the recording profile set to 16:9, but can't find anyother
settings that would allow me to override the reseting of VBI Mode.
If I use dd if=/dev/video0 of=/dev/video16 bs=64k the settings are not changed.
How can I make Myth keep these settings?
